History

Acquired from Newport Animal Control because they were full and would have to “make room” if a few dogs weren’t pulled by rescue.  Nothing else is known about her.

Known Issues & Progress

Dani is a sweet, laid back dog.  So much so that I had to CARRY her out to the truck from Animal Control because she would not walk on a lead.  She was up jumping on the door of her kennel and barking happily at me while I was on the other side of the door, but when I slipped inside with her she hunkered on the floor and got real quiet.  I spent quite a while talking to her and petting her, but she remained resistant to going anywhere.  Once I got her home, she hasn’t made a peep, and mostly just lounges on her Coolaroo.  I took her an Oinkee last night.  I passed it through the fence to her.  She took it from me, walked around with it in her mouth for a while, then went and hid it behind her dog house.  But that was within reach of Moonshine, should she reach through the fencing between them, so I retrieved it and put it inside Dani’s dog house.  I went out again later and found Dani on the Coolaroo with her Oinkee under her leg.  Good choice!

Dani is settling in nicely.

“NOooo, I’m staying in my safe place.”

Open door does not tempt Dani! “Noo, I’m staying.” (vid)
